BSNL announces Satellite-Based Narrow Band-IoT

Part of: GS Prelims and GS-III – Sci & Tech

In news

  • BSNL, in partnership with Skylotech India, announced a breakthrough in satellite-based NB-IoT (Narrow Band-Internet of Things).

Key takeaways

  • This is indigenously developed by Skylo.
  • It will connect with BSNLs satellite- ground infrastructure and provide PAN-India coverage, including Indian seas.
  • The coverage will be so vast that it will not leave any dark patch within the boundary of India.
  • This is the world’s first satellite-based NB-IoT network.
  • This new technology supports India’s plan of bringing indigenous IoT connectivity to India’s core sectors.
  • This technology has already been tested successfully in Indian Railways, fishing vessels, and enabling connected vehicles across India.
  • A small, smart, incredibly rugged box, the Skylo ‘User Terminal’ interfaces with sensors and transmits data to the Skylo Network and into people’s hands.
